Richa Chadha’s performance in Sarbjit has already begun to impress the critics. The actress has always been known strongly for her characters she plays on screen with much honesty and sincerity.

However the role of Sukhpreet Kaur wasn’t an easy choice for Richa to pick up. Being the brave actress that she is, she has in the past received strange feedback to essay a role on screen which ages over a period of time. She says, “I have played Nawaz’s mother in my first major motion picture. People shunned me after that and I had to justify myself to people everyday that I’m not that old or that I’m urban and not the person I portray on screen.

Eventually I have learned to focus more on work and find appreciation rather than focus on negativity such as these.” However she does feel that the industry too makes slots for certain people. Adding further she said, “Yes people do compartmentalise you, but things are changing now. People several times take you for who you are on screen.” Even sarbjit was a role Richa was discouraged to take up, “Much like MASAAN, I was told by many creative people to stay away from the film. But I was convinced of my role. People told me to fear being overshadowed by a world beauty like Aishwarya. I truly believe that if you have talent in whatever capacity on screen you can stand out”.
